Glacier Country Helicopters is a local, family owned and operated company in Franz Josef. Husband and wife team Gus & Poppy started the company in January 2014, still have their sleeves rolled up each day working their roles in the business and are both experienced pilots themselves. Our fleet includes AS350B2 Squirrels & a MD520N. All aircraft are maintained to high standards and are all equipped with V2Track systems so ground staff are in contact with pilots at all times. Our pilots complete regular comprehensive training and have extensive experience flying in the unique mountain environment we operate in. Our company and pilots all have outstanding safety records and we are certified under the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA).
